The wine estate has produced Armagnac since the mid-17th century. The vines were replanted when the château was rebuilt by its owners, the La Bassa family, also known as the Maniban. Initially, three grape varieties were used, as in the rest of the region: the Colombard, Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche. Nowadays, Ugni Blanc is the only variety used, as it is considered more 'specific' to Armagnac.

The rear of the château overlooks a park with a formal garden, century-old trees and a pond.

The vineyard:

30 years: 24 ha 88 a 15 ca
+ 30 years: 5 ha 94 a 42ca

In order to produce Armagnac, the property has a distillation room.
A vinification room with three large vats,
3 rooms for ageing the wines.
